Reader comment on item: The Vatican Confronts Islam

Submitted by Jon Alex Smail (United States), Jul 7, 2006 at 14:08

I would tell all the Christians in the muslim areas to move. Sometimes the best solution is to leave. How many more will have to die before the leaders wake up? Yes, they should tell all the Christians to move to the west. I know it sounds impractical, but it is a solution. Prophets in the bible, many times had to leave the dens of sin, in order, to grow in God's guidence. It is hard to become a saint, surrounded by evil.

I am Lebanese. Yet, I can't stand how Jews and Christians are treated by the Islamic world. It is wrong! I side with the children of Issac. Obviously, I am not Jewish, but Jews have always been kind to me. I love Israel. I believe it belongs to the Jews. I believe God exists. No, I know God exists. I know it in my heart. The arabs were given a blessing through Ishmael by God. Ishmael and Issac were brothers and they both loved their father Abraham. Yet, Isaac was chosen to develop the line of kings, not Ishmael. As an Arab, I am ok with this. I am not jealous. I support my family from the line of Issac. They are my brothers and sisters also. It is sad.
